Dear Soccer Families:

This past Thursday, July 4th, we had the pleasure of running a golf tournament fundraiser for the Melissa Tancredi Field upgrades. We had wonderful weather, some great games of golf, many donated prizes, and a delicious dinner.

We would like to thank the Tournament Committee – Peter Tancredi, Pat De Caria, Tony Mastracci, Maria Sampson, Italo Di Pietro, and Stefano Girgenti – the sponsors, the many volunteers, and the hundreds of golfers that helped us raise a grand total of $15,424.52 towards the field upgrades.

Our vision is to make the Melissa Tancredi Field the best grass field in the City, and we are excited to be able to partner with many different groups to achieve this. This is just one step in continuing to help the youth in our community develop physically, socially, and intellectually through the sport we all know and love – soccer!

The funding raised from the golf tournament will go towards:

  • new goal posts and nets
  • new spectator bleachers
  • future press box
  • future electronic scoreboard

In addition, the City has partnered with us to fund the following items:

  • shift field eastward to achieve City sports play and safety standards
  • provide flat perimeter safety zones to 5m width in all directions
  • install perimeter chain link fence and access gates
  • enlarge arrival area to allow for a greater number of spectators
  • relocate four light standards to accommodate field and new fence location, relocate existing players benches.

The following photos display the concept we are working towards:
